Addressing the Clinical Need for 3D™ Breast Biopsy Technologies; Prone and Upright Solutions

Date : Sunday, November 27

Session Start Time : 1:45 PM

Session End Time : 3:00 PM

Dr. Alejandro Tejerina, along with Dr. Linda Greer, will present a 75 minute symposia which focuses on the need for tomosynthesis imaging for guiding breast biopsy when managing complex, subtle and difficultto-access lesions. Dr. Linda Greer of Phoenix, AZ and Dr. Alejandro Tejerina of Madrid, Spain will provide their clinical perspectives on the use of 3D™ breast biopsy technology using the Affirm™ Upright Breast Biopsy Guidance System and the Affirm™ Prone Breast Biopsy System.

This course is intended for radiologists interested in learning more regarding how this technology can provide the ability to conduct 2D or 3D™ breast biopsies using the most exceptional imaging currently available.
